This year was an unprecedented year for the yearbook. j3y imple- 
menting a new style, changing the layout and bringing in a new 
staff, the yearbook process was the best it has ever been. Not only 
were there new executives, but also a fresher view and outlook that 
produced an incredible compilation of the year's events. Thank you 
to Vinnie Vrotny, Tim Curren, Emily Smith '00 Lynsey Wollin-Casey, 
Drea Gallaga, and all the students who contributed to the yearbook. 
Everyone's work and participation made a huge difference.

Every year, each of the Middle School 
and Upper School classes begins the year 
by participating in an outdoor educational 
experience. The purpose of these trips is 
to allow new students to meet the other 
members of the class and to teach stu- 
dents how to work in cooperative teams. 
Everyone enjoys these trips, and it is a 
great way to start the year. The bonding 
that occurs in these few days sets the tone 
for the rest of the year.

Get to know Christoph: 

Every year we look forward to meeting our 
exchange student. This year, we welcomed 
Christoph to his new community where he 
showed us his talents and abilities. He is a 
warm, friendly, intelligent addition to our 
classes, sports teams, and clubs, and is a great 
friend to all. We are fortunate to have had 
the opportunity to get to know him. As the 
year comes to an end, we will be sad to say 
goodbye. We wish him the best of luck in all 
his future adventures.

Homecoming was a soaring success this 
year! Spirit week included pajama day, 
dino day, crazy hat day, super fan day, and 
of course, RAIDER PRIDE day. 
Several Alumni returned to campus for 
the weekend, including singer and 
songwriter, Richard Marx '81. The Pep 
Rally was a great start to Homecoming 
weekend. Purple power fdled the stands 
at all of the sporting events.

Halloween was a huge success at North 
Shore this year. Everyone was excited 
for the parade and eager to show off their 
creative costumes, especially the seniors 
and their buddies. Pigs, 1950s basketball 
players, the characters from Clue, and 
even Van Gogh made an appearance. 
Many faculty came in costume this year, 
which added to the experience. Nothing 
could match the excitment of walking 
through the parade as parents snapped 
pictures on the sidelines.

North Shore parents are superheroes! Be-

ing schedules, assisting at school events, 
volunteering for the Parents' Association 
and the Benefit Board, it's incredible that 
our parents have the time and energy to 
do the little things. We depend on our 
parents for everything from supplying 
snacks at sporting events to planning class 
events. Without their help, so many of 
North Shore's wonderful events wouldn't 
be possible!

Every year, all members of the School 
including students, faculty, parents, and 
alumni gather in the Mac Gym to 
celebrate traditions from around the 
world during the Holiday Celebration. 
Each buddy group performs a dance, the 
faculty and alumni sing and dance, and 
then the kindergartners and seniors do 
the Hokey Pokey. Even Santa takes time 
out from his busy schedule to drop in for 
a visit. This year there were a lot of laughs 
and great all-school interactions.

Several times throughout the year, Morning Ex 
becomes Buddy Day. Students engage in various 
activities and projects with their buddies. Prior to 
Homecoming, buddy pairs are responsible for 
making the signs that propel North Shore sports tean 
to victory. We also make holiday cards for those who 
need cheering up, help clean up the North Shore 
campus when it gets really dirty, and play some 
incredibly fun games. And most importantly, Buddy 
Days allow us to create valuable relationships with 
students in different grades.

Basketball Bash was extremely successful 
this year. The Upper School Girls' team 
lost by one point and played an amazing 
game, and the Seventh Grade Boys domi- 
nated their game. Once again, the juniors 
held a fundraiser that included a raffle 
and shooting hoops at halftime, which 
was very successful. The turnout this year 
was fantastic. All Raiders fans came and 
cheered on all of the different age groups 
playing basketball. It was a great day.

This year provided lots of unique and fun ways to live 
up to our motto Live and Serve! The juniors chose Pen- 
nies for Peace for their service project. From January 8th 
to the 25th, each advisory in the Upper School had ajar 
in which they tried to get as many coins a possible. In 
conjunction with the juniors, the Fourth and Fifth Grade 
musical, Seussical, The Musical Jr. helped raise proceeds 
to benefit Pennies for Peace. The Upper School also 
organized a Knit-a-thon which was held on March 9th 
to benefit a non-profit organization called Afghans for 
Afghans. They enjoyed a great turnout! On May 12-16, 
students in the Middle School had a week-long bike drive 
with all the benefits going to a non-profit group called the 
Working Bikes Co-op. The Art Department introduced 
The CLOCKenspiel project where students, teachers, and 
parents were given the opportunity to design and build 
their own clock. Once they were completed, buyers were 
urged to bid for them, raising money for our sister school 
in Oaxaca, Mexico and Moshi, Tanzania.

The Homecoming Dance, hosted by the 
seniors, took an interesting approach this 
year. The theme was "Neon," and every- 
one got into the theme, especially the se- 
niors. The dance was a really good way to 
end a great weekend. This was one of the 
best themes and Homecoming Dance. 
The black lights, glow sticks and neon 
clothing really added to the affair.

The Eighth-Graders had yet another successful D.C. 
trip. They enjoyed going to all the monuments and 
were sad to see the trip come to an end. The highlight 
of the trip was when Erruiia Colman, Youssef Ibrahim, 
Aleda Deuble, and Jake|Kann laid the wreath at the 
Tomb of the UnknownfSolider. Another thing every- 
one loved was the play Shear Madness. It is a play 
about a barbershop, with a scandalous ending. The

loved the trip.

Each year, the new Fifth Grade class takes on a role of 

responsibility like no class in the Lower School. Being 
the oldest in the Lower School division, members of 
the Fifth Grade class learn to adapt to new priorities, 
assume different roles, and prepare themselves for the 
new world of Middle School. One of the first things 
the Fifth Grade takes charge of in the year is the lead- 
ership of the annual Halloween parade. Leading Lower- 
Schoolers with their spirited costumes and positive 
attitudes, Fifth-Graders announce and organize the 
parade, showing the rest of the school what it means 
to take charge. With experience under their belts, the 
Fifth Grade has no trouble preparing and executing a 
flawless and inspired Holiday Program. Further into 
their special year, they settled comfortably into their 
part as role models to the Lower School. In June, the 
Lower School's leaders are honored with a special grad- 
uation ceremony at Lower School Closing. The Lower- 
Schoolers will miss them, but we look forward to their 
success and achievements as Middle-Schooolers.

5th Grade Memories 29 

Super-charged with spirit, excitement, and high expectations, the 
atmosphere of this year's Interim Week was something special here 
at North Shore. With a week off from normal classes and home- 
work, Upper School students signed up to participate in teacher-led 
trips, projects, or daily excursions. Each Interim program is de- 
signed to enrich teachers' and students' education in areas outside 
the classroom and, frequently, outside their comfort zones. While 
all of the Interims are great fun, each student is required to partici- 
pate in a community-service-based Interim project once during 
their four years in high school. This year, one of the new commu- 
nity service projects was creating art with elderly Alzheimers and 
Dementia patients; the experience was powerful and rewarding. 
Other old favorites included working at Molloy Education center, 
a facility for children with developmental disabilities, and helping 
to beautify our state's outdoors at the Paver Trail Nature Center. 
Other local Interims included Second City and cake decorating. 
One major part of Interim every year is the trips offered. This year, 
groups traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico and Wycliffe College in Stone- 
house, England.

For the fall play this year, the Upper 
School put on A Few Good Men, by 
Aaron Sorkin. The play is about two 
marines who are arrested for murder, 
and how their lawyers fight for their 
freedom. One of the biggest chal- 
lenges that the cast had to overcome 
was learning how to act like Marines. 
The cast received a lot of help from 
Mr. Block and Mr. Dachille. Lighting 
changes were used to illustrate the oc- 
curring time changes in the plot, and 
this technique ended up working very 
well. The play got off the ground with 
help from Ms. Kelso, the director, and 
Ms. Flory, who designed the set. It was 
a huge success, and everyone who at- 
tended enjoyed themselves.

The Middle School play took an 
interesting approach this year, which 
definitely worked out. Instead of 
one play, the Middle-Schoolers 
performed three short plays. Some 
were serious and others were

The Madrigal Feaste this year was a 
huge hit. Everyone wished we had 
it every year. The chorus sang beau- 
tifully and the food was delicious. 
The setting definitely added to the 
medieval feel. Peter Callahan shined 
as the jester and everyone was laugh- 
ing when he acted out the 12 Days 
of Christmas. The Madrigal Feaste 
would not have taken place without 
Mr. Querio's hard work. We all can't 
lit for the next Feaste!

46 LS, MS, and US Choruses 

Each year, we are treated to two con- 
certs from our Lower School, Middle 
School, and Upper School choruses. 
This year, on December 13, 2007, 
these groups performed their annual 
Winter Concert. Each of the groups 
sounded wonderful as they sang 
their collection of songs. We were 
treated to returning alumnus, Chris- 
tine Perkins '06 who sang a song 
in Swahili with the Lower School 
Chorus. The year also marked the 
debut of the Lower School Girls' 
and Boys' A Cappella groups. The 
Lower School boys joined the Up- 
per School A Cappella Club, which 
turned out to be fun. At the end of 
each concert, the choirs combine to 
share one song to cap the evening. 
This year, they sang a song written 
by alumnus, Richard Marx '83, who 
was honored in the fall.

Each of the grades shares a dance, song,

celebrations that we observe. This 
year's theme was Winter Wonderland 
and we were treated to a wonderful set 
created by Mrs. Wagner and the Fifth 
Grade students. We all waited in eager 
anticipation for the Junior and Senior 
Kindergartners singing Feliz Navidad 
and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer fol- 
lowed by all Lower School students 
singing Give Us Hope.

This year, many MS and US students 
entered the Wilmette Art Show. 
North Shore was represented well at 
the event, and it proved to be a very 
rewarding experience for all who en- 
tered. Aaron Regunberg '08, Beth 
Vrotny '10, Hannah Walchak '09, 
Emily Gavin '09 and Hayun Cho '13 
were honored for their accomplish- 
ments. The art show was extremely 
successful and hopefully even more 
will enter next year!

The band concert was held on 
January 31st and brought amazing 
sounds to the North Shore commu- 
nity. Those who came to the concert 
had to brave the snow, which lead to 
a snow day the next day. Two Lower 
School bands, the Middle School 
band, and the Upper School ensem- 
ble helped to brighten students' and 
teachers' evenings with their upbeat 
music. There were also several so- 
loists during the evening, including 
Tommy McHugh '17 on trumpet, 
and Kate Lee '12 on flute. The mu- 
sicians showed off their talents on 
instruments like the trumpet, clari- 
net, piano, electric guitar, trombone, 
flute and drums. The combination 
of these various instruments created 
quite an amazing performance.

This year, the second grade play was 
a huge success. They performed The 
Three Little Pigs for an audience that 
not only included the whole school, 
but their parents as well. The show 
had two very scary wolves along with 
three adorable pigs. Along with the 
pigs and wolves, there were narrators 
and townspeople who sang the songs 
wonderfully. Mrs. Kiracibasi led the

This year, the Fourth and Fifth Grade 
play took a very interesting approach: 
a musical inspired by Dr. Seuss! Mrs. 
Hiland read a Dr. Seuss poem, which 
was an excellent start to the fun mus- 
cial. The musical included many dif- 
ferent books including Horton Hears a 
Wlio and Gertrude McFuzz. The cos- 
tumes were vibrant, and the energy 
that the cast gave really encouraged 
the audience's involvement as well. 
North Shore looks forward to next 
/ear's creation! 

4th/5th Grade Play 53 

This year the Upper School put on 
The Emperor's New Clothes. This play 
was especially successful because it not 
only appealed to the Lower School 
but also was a way to bring seniors and 
their kindergarten buddies together. 
The Japanese costumes were spec- 
tacular along with the beautiful set 
that was made up of screens and flow- 
ers. The villagers worked to make the 
show great with an imitation of Taiko 
drumming which really engagedjhe

Every three years, North Shore puts 
on a Gilbert and Sullivan musical. 
This year, the selection was the Pirates 
of Penzance. It was a great opportunity 
for the seniors to shine in their last op- 
portunity to perform at North Shore. 
It was an entertaining musical, with 
great singing and action.

The team this year lacked 
numbers on the roster but 
made up for it with their 
spirit. The Raiders went 
6-3 in the regular season and 
were given the opportunity 
to avenge a loss to Alden- 
Hebron in the playoffs. Al- 
though they lost, the season 
remained a tremendous 
success. The fairly small 
team had 10 seniors who as-

and will be missed next year.

This Middle School soc- 
cer season was described 
by Coach Kinnaird, who 
also worked with Coach 
Collins, as one of great 
improvement. The team 
won its two home games, 
and, in their very intense 
last game of the season, lost

Upper School Basketball 
had a great season, which 
, was guided by the only 
senior on the team, 
captain Kelly Powers. 
The team had members 
from every grade and re- 
ally bonded. They almost 
went where no girls North 
Shore team had gone 
before when they nearly 
won the Regional Cham- 
pionship (hosted by North 
Shore), a huge success for 
North Shore!

Each year in March, during the week before Spring Break, 
Lower School students break from the normal routine and 
experience a cross-grade learning experience. It is a week of 
exploration, filled with liveliness, excitement and fun. This 
year the theme 'was "light". Students explored designs on light 
sensitive paper, impressions, shadows, different light sources, 
stars, planets, and the adaptations of deep underwater creatures 
that use light signals to catch food. Students then shared their 
activities in Afternoon Ex.

Knitting Club - Afghans for Afghans 

Knitting Club is a new phenomenon this 
year. Started by Mrs. McHugh and a number 
of students, its members include both males 
and females from a variety of grades. Knit- 
ting is on fire this year! It seems like every 
day someone new is knitting in the senior 
homeroom or in advisory. This club has 
shown how fun and relaxing knitting really 
can be. It is a service club as well. On March 
9th, Knitting Club hosted a knit-a-thon called 
"Afghans for Afghans." It was an event to 
make scarves, hats and blankets 
for people in Afghanistan. This 
year, Knitting Club has shown that 
knitting is fun and can be put to 
good use!

Dedicated to those heroes who 
help us each and every day 

When we think of the heroes in our 
lives, we often think of those people who 
perform extraordinary tasks, like police- 
men and firemen. But heroes can often 
be the people in our lives who are around 
us all of the time, doing the little things to 
make our lives easier. This year, the staff 
of the Mirror wants to honor five individ- 
uals who make sure that we are ready for 
each and every school day. 

For 31 years, Sharon Dole has been 
the Assistant to the Head of the 
School. Her warmth and caring for 
all individuals on campus is leg- 
endary. Serving under five differ- 
ent Heads of School, she has been 
a critical part of the leadership at 
North Shore. 

Both Lorri Braidman, Lower 
School Assistant, and Leonie 
O'Donohoe, Middle School 
Assistant, have returned to 
work at North Shore after 
leaving for a short period 
of time. Previously an As- 
sociate in the Admissions 
office, Lorri has been help- 
ing Lower-Schoolers and 
their families for the last four 
years make the transition to 
school a happy one. Leonie, 
previously the Upper School 
Assistant, has been helping 
Middle-Schoolers deal with 
this chaotic time in their lives for the last four years. 

For the past five years, Tana Hitch has been helping both Upper School students and faculty keep 
their lives in order. Her no-nonsense approach helps those who are trying to assert their indepen- 
dence keep on a straight and narrow path. 

For the past nine years, Carol Woodhead has been the first voice and person that people experience 
on campus. Her willingness to help everyone is appreciated by all. 

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to those whose paths lead them 
away from North Shore. For the past nine years, Eric Skalinder has been not 
only a teacher of Physics, but has been an advisor, the Junior Homeroom Ad- 
visor helping many classes of students plan for prom, has also lead the Upper 
School Science Olympiad team, and has helped students build bridges for the 
IIT competition. In addition, he is a kind individual who genuinely cares about 
each and every student. We will miss the Donald Duck voices, the snaps, and 
other quirks that define who Skal is. Thanks Skal, we will miss you. 

For the past eight years, Burke Kinnaird has been an integral part of the Middle 
School. Burke has been active in all aspects of school life, coaching soccer, 
teaching students how to build planes for the Science Olympiad, and in the 
classroom teaching students about medieval times, persuading students about 
the form of the essay, and unlocking the rules of grammar through countless 
MUG paragraphs. Thank you Burke for all that you have done to help students 
get ready for the rest of Middle School and Upper School.

The First Milestones 

Junior Kindergarten is the first 
step towards achiev- 
ing many of the mile- 
stones at North Shore. 
It is a year of excite- 
ment and growth. The 
friendships formed this 
first year help create a 
supportive learning en- 
vironment. Time spent 
with senior buddies is 
an exciting opportunity 
for JK students to expe- 
rience different aspects 
of North Shore. They spend 
every Morning Ex together as 
well as several special "Buddy 
Days" throughout the year. 
Cinnamon Bear is a tradition 
that, through visiting every 
child's home, helps to make 
the connection between 
home and school more mean- 
ingful while encouraging literacy and responsibili- 
ty. These experiences combined with many others 
create a year filled with learning and fun!

New Challenges 

Senior Kindergarten is a year 
filled with ex- 
citement, wonder- 
ment, and challeng- 
ing but fulfilling 
experiences. The 
students engage in 
a variety of studies 
such as Friendship, 
Bees, Ocean Life, 
and the Polar region 
The Senior Kinder- 
gartners participate 
in author studies and 
other literacy explorations. 
The students create books, 
act out stories, and establish 
reading skills that will carry 
them successfully into first 
grade. One of the best mem- 
ories for a Senior Kindergart 
ner is having a Senior Upper 
School buddy. The positive 
experiences and strong friendships formed in 
Senior Kindergarten will follow these children all 
the way through their life at North Shore!

World Explorers 

As they step in the classroom 
for the first time, the First- 
Graders are excited 
to reconnect with 
their friends and get 
to know their new 
classmates. They 
begin learning more 
about themselves, 
each other, and how 
they are part of our 
school community. 
To learn more about 
the community we 

live in, they take field trips 
to the fire station and the 
doctor's office and even take 
a train trip to the bank! They 
become world explorers by 
learning more about con- 
necting with communities in 
countries around the world. 
It is a time and place to help 
spark the discovery of what 
community means to them and what part they 
play in it. Even at the end of the year, after all the 
new things they have experienced, it is only the 
beginning of their immersion into the community 
that is North Shore.

Discovering the World Around Us 

A focus of Second Grade is 
learning about 
themselves and the 
world they live in. 
This multicultural 
theme is interwoven 
through the Second 
Grade curriculum. 
The children re- 
search animals and 
learn about different 
habitats. A service 
learning project 
is our connection 
with Barnswallow, an ani- 
mal sanctuary for injured or 
orphaned birds of prey. Each 
month, Second-Graders visit 
their Senior Buddies at the 
North Shore Senior Center. 
This intergeneration expe- 
rience allows children and 
seniors citizens to create a 

special friendship. A highlight of Second Grade i 
the musical play. This year the children recreated 
the story of The Three Little Pigs. Children leave 
Second Grade with a deeper sense of self and their 
relationship to the broader community.

Hot Chocolate House Ti 

Third graders snapped their fin- 
gers, acted hip, 
sipped hot choco- 
late, got on stage and 
read their original 
stories at the an- 
nual Hot Chocolate 
House. Armed with 
digital voice record- 
ers, the third graders 
fanned out across 
the school inter- 
viewing everybody 
from kindergarten- 
ers to adults, asking them 
about favorite stuffed animals, 
super powers, and other top- 
ics. From the collected "tape" 
they created audio sound col- 
lages. In math, third graders 
did "candy box research" for 
Mr. J. P Yum Yum, finding 
all different boxes one could 
design to hold 24 pieces of candy. During activ- 
ity time, students played with Noodles the gerbil, 
wrote their own comic books, played computer 
chess or came up with fun projects of their own.

This year Fourth-Graders have 
worked hard 
exploring and 
learning about the 
world around them. 
They have gone back 
in time to take in the 
Wonders of Ancient 
Egypt. Afterwards 
they researched topics 
and recreated Egypt 
lin the classroom in 
s order to share it with 
ithe rest of the Lower School. 
IFrom Egypt, the class traveled! 
«to Japan and learned about a 
i modern day culture totally 
i different from their own. 
| Through the year they have 
! reflected on issues greater 
than themselves, whether it 
be the dream of Martin 
Luther King Jr., the struggles 

of children their own age in Afghanistan, or the challenge 
of immigrants moving to a new land. They have worked 
hard reading new books, learning math skills and putting 
their observations down on paper. It has been a exciting 
year in the Fourth Grade!

116 Sixth Grade 

Starting a New Era 

Sixth Grade is a very important 
year because 
the Sixth-Graders 
have to manage the 
increased workload 
and their role in the 
Middle School. This 
year the Sixth Grade 
went on Outdoor 
Ed to the Glenview 
Forest Preserve 
where they learned 
how to set up tents, 
basic first aid, and 
how to identify certain plants 
and animals. A big theme of 
Sixth Grade curriculum is 
the study of Medieval Europe 
so they went on a field trip 
to Medieval Times where 
they rooted for their assigned 
knight as that knight rivaled 
the other knights. Another 
fun field trip the Sixth-Graders went on was an 
overnight stay at the Field Museum. The Sixth 
Grade also has been very active in service learning 
by volunteering at a soup kitchen once a month.

1 1 8 Seventh Grade 

Graders Just Did It! 

Last year, Middle School was some 
thing brand new 
to us and it took a 

h while for us to get 

i the hang of it. This 

1- year has been com- 
pletely different! 
Going on a campout 
at the beginning 
of the year re- 
ally helped us bond 
together as a group. 
As the school year 
began, we quickly 
distinguished ourselves as an 
outstanding class. We really 
enjoyed sharing our talents 
with the community. Our 
athletic teams enjoyed lots of 
success and Seventh Grade 
actors definitely stole the 
show in the Middle School 
play, Testing, Testing. Middle 
School dances were fun but nothing compared to 
class with Mr. Leesch or Ms. Aldinger. It was a 
little rough when Mr. Collins left us for his pater- 
nity leave but Ms. Latash did a great job filling in 
for him. Watch out Mr. Block, here we come!

Middle School Leaders 

Eighth Grade year in Middle School 
is a very challenging 
one. The Eighth- 
Graders have to be 
the leaders of the 
Middle School, 
and prepare for the 
transition to the 
Upper School at 
the same time. The 
core curriculum 
of Eighth Grade is 
the Family History 
Project. The Eighth- 

Graders combine science, 
humanities, and art into one 
big project that consumes 
most of their final Middle 
School year. Another high- 
light of Eighth Grade is the 
annual trip to Washington 
D.C. in October. And finally, 
Eighth-Graders get to preparel 
for their graduation ceremony in June. All in all, 
Eighth Grade is one of the most fun, productive, 
and memorable Middle School years.

1 22 Ninth Grade 

This was a good year for the 
freshman class. We 
had a ton of new 
students, with 22 of 
the 49 students be- 
ing new. 

Another challenge 
for the freshman 
class was that the 
Ninth Grade was 
the biggest in North 
Shore history! Even 
so, the class was able 
to come together 
during Outdoor Ed when the 
class camped out at Richard 
J. Bong Recreational Facility 
and did a multitude of things, 
from camping to playing 
volleyball. We learned a lot 
this year! We could choose 
our foreign language, had an 
arts rotation to sample the art 
choices, and took freshman seminar to learn about 
health and diversity. The class has a bright future!

A Perfect Ten(th Grade) 

With one year of experience 
in the Up- 
per School, this 
year's sophomore 
class enjoyed lots of 
success! We kicked 
off the school year 
by participating in 
a fun and thought- 
provoking retreat 
sponsored by Youth 
Frontiers. As the 
year progressed, 
our footprint on 
the life of the school became 
more pronounced. It's really 
exciting to seen lOth-Grad- 
ers beginning to take leading 
roles on stage, on the athletic 
field, and in the classroom. 
A definite highlight for the 
class was the annual turn- 
about dance that we planned 
with the freshmen. Many kids said it was the best 
dance of year! Now that we have two years under 
our belt, watch out for the class of 2010!

Mastering Fund-Raisins 

As upperchssmen, the 11th- 
Graders ap- 
proached the new 
school year with 
confidence and 
leadership. Each 
junior knew how 
demanding and 
important the year 
ahead was going to 
be, but managed to 
have a lot of fun. By 
coordinating events 
and fund raisers for 
prom, such as running the 
junior store everyday, the 
junior class has stepped up to 
be leaders for the freshmen 
and sophomores. And they 
are still looking up to their se 
niors for advice about teach- 
ers, classes, and even college. 
From hosting an international! 
student from Germany to raising money for Greg 
Mortenson, the junior class has had an unbeliev- 
ably successful year and will continue on as se- 
niors acting as role models in the Upper School.

three years at North Shore great ones. I really 
enjoyed my time here, and I'm sure you were 
a big part of that. Thanks for always being 
there for me. Te Amo. 

Shaun, we had some good dances. We made 
the school just a little bit cooler. You were 
always there for me and we had a lot of great 
talks. I love you like a brother. 

To my family. Thanks. I know 
I've been difficult and I know 
maybe I'm a dorky brother, but I 
love you guys. Thanks. 

It's hard to stay mad, when there's so much 
beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like 
I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, 
my heart fills up like a balloon that's about 
to burst.... And then I remember to relax, and 
stop trying to hold onto it, and then it flows 
through me like rain and I can't feel anything 
but gratitude for every single moment of my 
stupid little life.... You have no idea what I'm 
talking about, I'm sure. ...But don't worry.

Shaun, Caroline, Xochitl and I. You guys all 
spice up my life. "Who can say if I've been

I have been changed for good." - Wicked 

To the teachers and 
people at North 
Shore, I guess it 
couldn't have been 
possible without 

To all of my classmates, I may have been 
quiet. I may have looked uninterested. But 
you guys made my North Shore experience. 
It's cliche, but you guys are family, I love 
you guys, and if we see each other at a later 
time in life, you guys can have dinner at my 
place. If I have one.

Kawaga Ideal 

Build me a son, Lord, who will be strong 

enough to know when he is weak and brave enough 

to face himself when he is afraid. One 

who will be proud and unbending in defeat, 

and humble and gentle in victory. 

A son whose wishbone will not be where his back- 
bone should be. A son who will know that 
to know himself is the foundation stone of all true 

Rear him I pray, not in the paths of ease and 
comfort, but under the stress and spur of difficulties 
and challenges. Here let him learn 
to stand up in the storm, here let him learn 
compassion for those who fail. 

Build me a son, whose heart will be clean, 

whose goal will be high. A son who will master 

himself before he seeks to master others. One 

who will learn to laugh yet never forget how 

to weep. One who will reach onto the future, 

but never forget the past. And after all these 

are his, add, I pray, enough of a sense of 

humor so that he may always be serious, but 

not take himself too seriously. A touch of humility so 

that he may always remember the 

simplicity of true greatness, the open mind of 

true wisdom, the meekness of true strength.
